We all handle our grief in different ways, and the most difficult part is in finding closure, and trying to make sense of it all. The infamous Rainbow Bridge poem states that:
"When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable".
I think what it all boils down to is the old argument as to whether or not animals have souls. I believe absolutely that they do!
"the wolf also shall dwell with the lamb and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. Their young ones shall lie down together." (Isaiah 11:6-8)
"The children ceased their playing beneath the trees, and the little birds nestled among the vines, and all who had been busy in various ways throughout the day sought rest and quiet". (from the book 'Within The Gates' following the author's near-death experience).
In the bible it says that when Jesus returns he will ride a white horse. Surely the horse that Jesus would ride would have a soul and a spirit. Why then would his horse have a spirit and soul and not all other animals. God put animals in the garden, not as an afterthough, but before mankind.
More to come, please return!
When the earth was destroyed by flood, God preserved the animals along with mankind. When the flood subsided, God made a covenant with Noah to never destroy the earth again by flood.
"And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, blessing and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the lamb for ever and ever" Revelation 5:13
